Cairns interviewed by Scotland Yard investigators over match-fixing allegations
Wellington: Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns has reportedly been interviewed by investigators from the Scotland Yard over match-fixing allegations.
Since his name was first linked to an International Cricket Council (ICC) corruption investigation, Cairns has strongly maintained his innocence while protesting he has been kept in the dark about the exact nature of the allegations.
According to Stuff.co.nz, although Cairns refused to elaborate on his discussions with British metropolitan police, he however, maintained that he has nothing to hide and remains totally committed to doing `whatever it takes to prove that via whatever means necessary`.
Cairns further claimed that the interview was cut short, but only because investigators had to return to the UK and that he will continue to liaise with them via his UK solicitors, adding that he is also prepared to meet with officials from the ICC`s Anti Corruption and Security Unit once the British police have completed their inquiries
Cairns and fellow former New Zealand teammates Daryl Tuffey and Lou Vincent , who played together in the now defunct Indian Cricket League, were first linked in December last year to an ICC investigation into allegations of match-fixing, the report added.
